I have been teaching for 16 years.
My teaching style is best described as fun, but thorough. My students would describe me as energized and nerdy. My co-workers would describe me as well-organized and planned. I love bringing ELA into Science and Social Studies. People most often relate Science to Math, but Language Arts can also be a great integration! My classroom focuses on hands-on, student-led discoveries.
